The student response to campus living at FGCU is very positive. The freshman dorms, which are called South Village, are very nice and a great way for freshmen to meet people. The other dorms on campus include North Lake Village, which is apartment-style living. Most people say the kitchens are nice and that North Lake is close to the center of campus. The difference between South Village and North Lake is that at South Village, you only have one roommate and bathroom—no kitchen in your dorm room. At North Lake, you have three other roommates and a kitchen. The dorms have a well-equipped gym, a pool, a great campus restaurant, and many social events for the residents.
There's also West Lake Village, which is an off-campus apartment-style living option located near Gulf Coast Town Center. West Lake has very nice apartments and includes a shuttle service to and from main campus. Other than taking a shuttle from West Lake to campus, if you need to go anywhere, you can usually be there in just a 10-minute walk.
